Several questions are being asked on why Bloggers in Ghana are so make focused on disseminating information which later turns out to hoax or promotes negativity.
In series of tweets by Zylofon Media’s Head of Communications, Sammy Flex Baah from February 05 to February 07 registered his discomfort on the attitudes of valuable industry players and mainstream media outfits who hoard information which he thinks when shared will collectively provide remedies for our Ghanaian Creative Arts Industry
#myopinion. Blame not bloggers for writing junk stories. Blame those with information in the creative arts space who refuse to share cos they are not answerable to any one. Our game seems joke cos those with serious information won’t even pick your calls. Politics wins everyday🤔

The ill attitude of the Media, Industry Players and Creatives in Ghana is one of the major factors which contributes to our sickening industry. We solely agree with Sammy Flex as we also face challenges trying to verify rumors from the main source before our publications, some even decline our calls, those who pick up show no interest in furnishing us with facts to put out. These among some of the reasons why Bloggers or Entertainment Writers publish alleged information as facts.
The resolute answers to our woes in the Creative Arts Industry is to have a united front which enables the accession of information easy.
Kindly Checkout Sammy Flex’s Opinion Tweets Below;
#myopinion– it’s petty on the part of media houses who ignore industry events and awards on the basis that the organizers have official partnership with other media firms. We need to go above such thinking. Let’s lobby to win some or see the bigger picture of an industry 🤔🤔🤔

Some musicians mention the names of some radio presenters to coerce them to play their songs. I have been monitoring and those people don’t even play such songs. So what happens if the one who was not mentioned also refuses to play? Blame yourself my guy. 🤔🤔🤔
